This is in response to: Military 

Perhaps you should learn to READ!

I stated that "note below is just base pay".  I also said "They get anywhere from $1,000-$3,000/month that is Tax Free". 

That is in ADDITION to the base pay.  This is the Basic allowance that we got for housing, dependents.  We also got additional monies for seperation allowance, incidentals, hazardous duties pay.  ALL of these are TAX FREE.  Now, of course the amount one gets is based on their home state & rank.

I don't know what branch you are in honey, but the ARMY 'hooked' us up!

Then I'm sure other branches of services offer great benefits too.

  If you don't have them, maybe its because you were too busy "TALKING" instead of "LEARNING"!

Good day.

 in response to dkp...   

i don't know how easy it is to do this in the navy, but in the army, when promotions lull in a particular MOS, most people just reclass under a different MOS.  I know of someone who actually served under SEVEN different MOS classifications in his 20 year stint.  I myself will have served under at least five (due to specialized training and MOS changes after special schools) within my first 7 years.  11B, airborne/air assault, sniper, 18X/C, and eventually 18O.  Yes, military pay could be better considering we put our lives on the line every day we go to work, but most people in the military (or at least in my opinion, the ones who joined for the right reasons) are there to serve, not get rich... besides, when you tally up free/rediculously reduced healthcare costs for the soldier and family, all the various allotments (such as housing allotment, special schools pay, seperation pay, hazard pay, combat pay) it comes pretty close to being competitive with the pay/benefit packages you would/could earn working for a major corporation.  And no, i'm not a recruiter either :)

Nope, I am not a recruiter.

And, $3700/month plus BAH & other benefits definitely beats being unemployed or underemployed.  You get healthcare, 3 square meals/day & shelter.  Not bad in these times of economic distress.  Then there is the school benefits.  But most of all it gives one a chance to do the most important thing- serve one's country.

Talk to Anonymous40784
dkp

Still kind of crappy when you consider a Chief can have 16 years; a B.A, lots of sea duty, and lots of leadership and in-rate training and still only make $3700/mon.  That's not great pay.

...and yes, advancement slows down for many rates, meaning, despite good evaluations; great physical readiness, and number of awards and academical ability, a sailor may find his/her rating at a lull so that only a few are adanced each cycle. 

So one can be in longer then others and still not advance despite ability (others, meaning, people in OTHER ratings).

 

Ergh.  Hope you're not a recruiter or something.
